The divorce was finalized but there have been motions and agreements post divorce decree
I was told that I could file a motion against the divorce decree if it is a contempt
In short, we are reading the divorce decree differently and I am trying to get in front of a judge to explain to the x that she is mis interpreting it.
in short I pay 80% for any expense that is agreed to in advance
My x wants to send the children to private school and expects me to pay 80%
something like this happen last year with preschool where she switched schools at the last min and I ended up paying 4 times what I agreed to.
According to the parenting plan
. Section V sub part CExtraordinary Expenses: Father shall pay $250.00 and Mother
shall pay the balance of the costs of the children to attend the Child Development
Center for pre-school, including any enrichment classes for each child. Otherwise, Father shall pay 80% and Mother shall pay 20% of any extracurricular and extraordinary expenses incurred on behalf of the minor children that are mutually agreed to in advance. For purposes of this paragraph, extraordinary expenses shall include, but are not limited to, the cost of tutoring sessions, special or private elementary and secondary schooling to meet the particular educational needs of a child, camps, lessons, travel, and other activities intended to enhance the athletic, social or cultural development of a childMy understanding of Section V sub part C is unless I agree to private school, Xwife has to pay 100% of the cost, Her remedy is to go to mediation
to try to resolve this issue. which she refuses to do.From section IV:Mother shall have sole legal custody
. Nevertheless, Mother and Father shall confer and attempt to agree on issues affecting the growth and development of the children, including, but not limited to, choice of religious upbringing, choice of school, course of study, special tutoring, extracurricular activities (including, but not limited to, music, art, dance and other cultural lessons or activities, gymnastics or other athletic activities, choice of camp or other comparable summer activity), medical and dental treatment, psychological, psychiatric, or like treatment or counseling, the choice of particular health care providers, child care providers, the extent of any travel away from home, part or full-time employment, purchase or operation of a motor vehicle, contraception and sex education, and decisions relating to actual or potential litigation on behalf of the children. Mother shall give good faith consideration to Father’s position concerning any issue to be decided. However, should the parties not agree, Mother shall be the final decision-maker.My take on what this means is:If The X and I don't agree the X can decide to send Chelsey to any school she wants.If Angela sends Chelsey to a private school I am not obligate by the parenting plan to pay any portion of the cost of the school
